Intel has announced they are making a new commercial drone, the Falcon 8+, an octocopter measuring about 30" by 32" by 6.3", and weighing about 6.17 lbs at takeoff. No availability or price mentioned, They said it will be highly autonomous, able to pilot itself.

Interesting tech, and obviously not meant to compete with Yuneec or any other consumer drones.

Thanks for the link.

I'm glad Intel has taken this step because the rising tide will raise all boats as far as this technology is concerned. Eventually all drone hobbyists will benefit from this step. The chips Intel has developed, and will develop, will one day end up in affordable hobby-drones.
